Moving in should be exciting, not a nightmare of paying for repairs that the sellers should have done. Let's prevent that!

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND

😄

Please order a reinspection only for repairs you can't verify during the final walkthrough.

To request a reinspection, please fill out the form below, and our staff will get back to you as soon as possible.

 

You will receive a quote and the soonest time/day we can get an inspector out to reinspect!​​​

RE-INSPECTION REQUEST FORM

Once you fill out this form we will get back to you as soon as we can to let you know if we would be able to fit it into our schedule and how much it would cost.

$95

BASE FEE

This fee may increase depending the location of the home and what the inspector needs to reinspect.

$25

ATTIC

Getting into the attic takes time. Setting up the ladder, crawling through the tight space within the attic, and putting the ladder away can greatly increase the amount of time the inspector spends at the home.

$25

CRAWLSPACE

Putting on knee pads and navigating through a crawlspace takes time and the inspector will need to "clean up" afterwards.

$

TRAVEL FEE

If we aren't able to schedule a reinspection while our inspector is in the general area, a travel fee will be applied.

 

Sometimes, reinspections that are farther away from Idaho Falls require us to block out an inspector's schedule!

WHY ARE REINSPECTIONS NOT FREE?

We started providing free reinspections shortly after starting the company in 2019. Since then, we have performed hundreds of reinspections and, most of the time, found issues the seller didn't address. The reinspection fee was never "included" in the home inspection fee. We offered this service at our cost to help buyers know whether or not the seller fixed the bigger issues. We have been charging a service fee for reinspections outside of Idaho Falls, but we have not been very strict with this fee.

From the start, free reinspections were intended for just a handful of issues that couldn't be seen during the final walkthrough. Through the years, reinspection requests have gotten longer and longer to the point where we are now averaging inspecting 20+ issues that were fixed. Although it seems like going through a list doesn't take a long time, it does! We have to compare what we are seeing to the original report and the RE-10 to make sure everything gets done correctly. Going back into attic spaces and crawlspaces takes even longer. Since we try not to schedule reinspections during normal home inspection hours, these reinspections take up the inspector's free time in their personal life.

The re-inspection fee helps cover the cost of sending an inspector to the home again, making it worthwhile for them. This fee will also help us send another home inspector to reinspect the home if the original inspector is booked out!

AM I REQUIRED TO GET A REINSPECTION?

A reinspection is not required! However, it is highly recommended that you get a reinspection when you ask the seller to fix issues that you can't check yourself! In most cases, we encourage you to ask the seller to provide documentation of repairs along with photos/video evidence. If you don't receive evidence of the work that was done or are still unsure after receiving it from the sellers, that's when you can get ahold of us to come back and reinspect!

HOW LONG DOES A REINSPECTION TAKE?

A quick reinspection of only a couple of items takes about 10-20 minutes on site. If there is a long list of items that need to be reinspected, or if the inspector needs to go into the crawlspace/attic space, it can take even longer!

DO I GET A REINSPECTION REPORT?

If you would like to get a reinspection report with pictures and videos of the home inspector's findings, we can definitely put a small report together! Simply request the report within your online portal before the reinspection!
